"Pros: Quanta Plus is fast, stable, and filled with very useful features. It’s probably the best web IDE for Linux available today

"Cons: Although it is packed with features, there are some basic ones missing – such as support for SVN

"Quanta Plus 01Quanta Plus is an open source web development package from the KDE team. The software has a simple and clean user interface and, though it’s not packed with features, it has pretty much everything one would expect of a web IDE. We have been in search of a good Linux-based alternative to some of the cool web development tools for the Mac and for the Windows platforms. Let’s look at some of the features that make Quanta Plus a force to reckon with in this space.

"Quanta Plus supports multiple views of your document as you are working on it. You can use it in code mode, WYSIWYG mode, or use the DOM tree mode. We like this choice as it allows you some flexibility – you can switch between views while working on the document. Quanta Plus also allows you to split your workspace into two views. You can work on the code in one half while having the WYSIWYG mode displayed in the other half. This is neat because you get a preview of changes as you make them in your code, without having to save the file or launch a web browser."
